The Flight Of The Phoenix

1965

Robert Aldrich
Director

Based on the Elleston Trevor novel, a cargo plane en route to Benghazi crash-lands in the desert hundreds of miles from anywhere and with no distress signal sent. The small group of survivors sweat it out in the heat whilst trying to formulate their own rescue plan.
Extremely tense, enjoyable and realistic drama/adventure headed by some big names. ~ The Lord

The Ultimate Junkyard Wars. Survivors of a plane crash endeavour to build a new aircraft from the wreckage. One of those great "they-don't-make-'em-like-that-anymore" films. ~ The Sloth
